Reading Lord Sacks book

20 June 2015

I am reading Lord Jonathan Sacks book " Not in Gods name; Confronting religious violence " and as always he challenges the religious status quo, asking hard questions of us not the other. A quote.

As Jews, Christians and Muslims, we have to be prepared to ask the most uncomfortable questions. Does the God of Abraham want his disciples to kill for his sake? Does he demand human sacrifice? Does he rejoice in holy war? Does he want us to hate our enemies and terrorise unbelievers? Have we read our sacred texts correctly? What is God saying to us, here, now? We are not prophets but we are their heirs.
